An Adventure Around the World

Learn About Cultures Across the Globe

Let's Get Started

Hey kids! Over the next week, you will choose a culture around the world and research it to develop an understanding and appreciation for that culture.

Before we start our adventure, let us tell you a little about ourselves.

Our team is made up of 4 people: Tali, Crystal, Candace, and Smyth. Here's a little bit about each one of them.


Tali is a senior at The University of Georgia majoring in geography. Her favorite place that she has traveled to is New Zealand. She loved getting to know a different culture on the opposite side of the world. Next on her travel list, she wants to go Thailand.


Crystal is a senior at The University of Georgia and is an international affairs major. She is originally from China and her favorite travel spot is Malaysia. She enjoyed the beaches and the locals in Malaysia. The next travel spot she hopes to check out is Switzerland.


Candace


Smyth is a senior at The University of Georgia and is majoring in Psychology. She lived in Europe for 6 weeks this past summer and loved it. She said that she really enjoyed getting to know the people there and growing accustom to the differences in the cultures. She hopes to travel to either Australia or New Zealand on her next trip.
